Lazy Day Cabbage Rolls

This tasty casserole is a lot faster to prepare than cabbage rolls and has much the same flavour. I made. The leftovers are good too. I use extra lean ground beef and brown rice in the recipe.

1 medium green cabbage, coarsely chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 pound ground beef
1 egg
1/2 cup rice
1-1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional but tasty)
3 cups tomato juice ( I use 1-28 oz tin of diced tomatoes)

Place half the cabbage and onion in a medium roasting pan
Mix the ground beef, egg, rice, salt and seasonings together and spread over the cabbage.
Cover with the rest of the cabbage and pour juice/tomatoes over the top.

Bake at 350 F for 3 hours stirring occasionally and adding more liquid if necessary.

This sounds delicious. I'm going to give it a try. Sounds a lot easier than making cabbage rolls and just as tasty. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for idea, I make a Chinese Version with Napa cabbage. The rolls has a lot of wastage and a lot of work.

I will try your lasange version.
